Thin Lizzy are the latest band confirmed for Ramblin' Man Fair.
The festival will be a UK exclusive performance for the band, who will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the release of their "Jailbreak" album, as well as marking 30 Years since the passing of Phil Lynott. Thin Lizzy will be playing a select few shows in Europe and the USA to honour these important milestones, but Ramblin' Man Fair will be their only UK date.
Thin Lizzy's line-up will consist of vocalist Ricky Warwick, guitarists Scott Gorham and Damon Johnson, Darren Wharton on keyboards and special guest drummer Mikkey Dee from Motörhead.
Scott Gorham said: “With Black Star Riders taking some time off the road to work on their third album, I thought it would be really cool to do some Thin Lizzy shows as it’s an anniversary year, to have some fun and to re-live the good old days. We will only do half a dozen or so dates to keep them special. For personal reasons Brian Downey won’t be with us but we have the incredible Mikkey Dee on the drum stool, which we are all very excited about. We will announce who is on bass shortly”
Mikkey Dee added: “It’s an honor to be asked to play with Thin Lizzy on these dates, being a life long fan I am so happy and excited to playing with band on these shows. It’s going to be great!”
Thin Lizzy join an already impressive line-up for the festival which includes headliners Whitesnake and Black Stone Cherry as well as Europe, Airbourne, Hawkwind, Uriah Heep and many more, with further band announcements expected soon.
Ramblin' Man Fair takes place 23 - 24 July 2016 at Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent. Tickets are on-sale right now via Planet Rock Tickets!
